MIAMI (AP) - The NBA and the National Basketball Retired Players Association are among those criticizing Dennis Rodman's latest trip to North Korea.
The NBRPA released a statement Tuesday saying the trip ''is not supported by our organization in any way,'' a similar sentiment to what was offered by NBA Commissioner David Stern.
A number of former NBA players are on the trip with Rodman, who calls North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a ''friend for life'' despite the nation's human rights record and its development of nuclear weapons.
Rodman says a game scheduled for Wednesday between the former NBA stars and North Korean players is a birthday present for Kim.
